I have a 3G yeah, but want the 32GB 3GS.
Especially at $194.35 after cashback.


I don't understand....


Of course you don't.


Do you have a 3G with a 2 year contract? You more than likely will have to pay the unsubsidized prices for a 3GS($400 16GB, $500 32GB).

Meaning your dreams of a $200 32GB 3GS will likely remain unfulfilled.

Don't be silly, this deal only works for new activations.

That's why I said I have to find a way to take advantage.

Right now, the plan is to have my lady friend order a new $200 3GS for me. I'll sell her my 3G for next to nothing and we'll swap SIM cards.
She's been wanting an iPhone anyway.

Bing Cashback has no such requirement

But I love talking while driving!

Maybe I could use the socom headset...Im sure it's better than the warhawk one.

That's what it says in the major thread about it at Fatwallet.

My plan still stands though if indeed you don't need to.

EDIT:
CashBack TOS said:Upgrades, add-a-lines and GoPhone (prepaid) service are not eligible for the CashBack program.

I didn't see anything of the sort via the Bing T&Cs.

It's under the AT&T/Microsoft cashback TOS since its for that specific deal.

Spoiler

I see.

Pretty shitty of Bing to make no mention of limits on the splash page, or in the linked T&C page.

Oh well, I'm on vacation the 19th and wouldn't be able to get my phone even if Bing worked.

here we go again.. that time of the year and im itching for a new phone.. for the most part the camera is the only downer on this new iphone.. i havent made up my mind yet..ive been spoiled with my n95 and n97 is coming soon.

Just to clarify..current att members that are NOT in the contract period are eligible for the 199/299 prices? Also if i find someone selling an old 3g, can i just swap sim cards and it will work or do i have to call all to add the iphone plan? I already have the unlimited data/txt plan.

Thanks

The 3GS' GPU is much improved.
Can't wait to see if it's taken advantage of.

I'll be ordering my 3G S through AT&T.com tonight.

Anyone know if they charge right away or when it ships?

Seems like some people here really know what there talking about =] I have a few questions.

I have an Iphone 8GB ( the origional one , not 3g ) that I purchased March 3rd 2008. It recently cracked ( two months ago - maybe more ) instead of buying a 3G I held out because I thought a new one would be released, and sure enough its coming.

Am I eligible for the upgrade? I think I am because I have the older phone, right?

From what I understand, the 3G was $30 for the data plan, Im paying $20 right now on the old Iphone, will the 3GS still be $30?

Heres the tricky one, I jumped on my grandmothers AT&T line because family plans are so much cheaper, well unfortunetly she passed away and we retardedly never changed the account out of her name, but cancelled her number. How is apple ( or best buy ) going to handle this upgrade - I dont have the account information, I can get it, but I dont know if it will go through .. any suggestions?

And lastly, When I do upgrade, im planning on putting my older Iphone on Ebay to get back some of the $199.99 I gotta pay for the new one .. how do these sell? Its pretty cracked but suprising still works great, If I try and Unlock it first can I get more money for it?

thats it for now, thanks!

I won't ever get an iPhone with a plan. People will be dumping their 3G phones on craigslist after the 3GS comes out, Imma get one and jailbreak it just like my deceased 2G.

I bet you'll be able to get them for <130 bucks soon enough.

You can either call ATT or go look at your account online and see when you are eligible.

From what I understand, the 3G was $30 for the data plan, Im paying $20 right now on the old Iphone, will the 3GS still be $30?


Yes, it has a higher data plan because of the 3G speed.

Heres the tricky one, I jumped on my grandmothers AT&T line because family plans are so much cheaper, well unfortunetly she passed away and we retardedly never changed the account out of her name, but cancelled her number. How is apple ( or best buy ) going to handle this upgrade - I dont have the account information, I can get it, but I dont know if it will go through .. any suggestions?


If your grandmother's number was cancelled, that means someone in your family has the ability to access the account. If you aren't authorized, someone who is must do it.

And lastly, When I do upgrade, im planning on putting my older Iphone on Ebay to get back some of the $199.99 I gotta pay for the new one .. how do these sell? Its pretty cracked but suprising still works great, If I try and Unlock it first can I get more money for it?

You may have to pay more than 199.99 depending upon your eligibility. What do you mean it is cracked, the screen? If so, it will still sell because you can fix those. Unlocking is not necessary to make it sell.

I'm thinking of signing up for AT&T just to try it out. If I wind up liking it, will I be able to port my number over from T-Mobile later, or would I have to cancel the account and make a new one?

Or I might just wait until I can find a factory unlocked one and shell out however much for it. I don't feel like giving up my unlimited minutes, data and texting for $85 with T-Mobile. :(

You can transfer your phone number, I think it's a law now.

You're not going to get a deal anywhere near that good with AT&T. Get a jailbroken phone, or do it yourself (it ain't hard).

I'm pretty sure it'll be a very long time before someone figures out how to unlock the iPhone 3GS.

For some reason I thought you were talking about the regular 3G. #-o

Just checked my bank account and they charged me right away.

Was it a charge or a hold? I recall reading that they don't charge until it's shipped.
